A unique opportunity for an experienced duo to run a country pub.

The Wyndham Arms is a beautiful pub with restaurant serving delicious food, a courtyard garden and a children's play area in Kentisbeare, Devon, EX15 2AA.  

Awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for both 2017 and 2018, the pub is at the heart of the village, within a 10 minute drive of the M5.

The applicants must be able to cook up to around 70 main courses at peak nights, in what is the hardest environment in the catering business.

Turnover in 2017 was £400,000 split 60:40 in favour of Bar. There is significant scope to increase turnover and margin, especially on the food.

The opportunity is for the Caterer to grow the food trade and have the food franchise benefiting from the profit, (no capital needed except food stock and some working capital, which will be nominal). In addition, they will take responsibility for the bar being paid a salary and earn a bonus based on Bar profit.

This opportunity is much more than managing a pub, it requires a dynamic and committed couple who will benefit from their efforts. As a rural pub in a thriving village promotion good ongoing publicity is key to attracting new business. 

A recently refurbished 3 bedroom flat is included with the position and there is also the possibility for the right couple to acquire the Tenancy in the future.
